Slow Lane promotes a sustainable lifestyle through individually handcrafted products made with materials sourced locally in an attempt to reduce the carbon footprint of what we make. We support traditional crafts people, often in lesser developed parts of China, and in this way we hope to help preserve techniques that are increasingly forgotten in the modern world. Our seamstresses, potters, dyeing masters and weavers work with us making products we are confident fit a niche in the market that few achieve. We are committed to fair trade, and helping to guide our artisans in a way that will further their crafts.
Most of our products are made in our own workshops or by crafts-people who work closely with us and share our philosophy. Our designs are unique and reflect our philosophy of elegant functionality.
Slow Lane believes in that more affluent China should also be more accountable producers and consumers in the global market place.
